    So here is the live song I did at my Moms funeral service I have to admit that I almost lost it but was able to buck up and make it through the song

    This version was tweaked to apply to make the tribute apply

    </div><div>Playing at events where you are very deeply involved emotionally are very hard to stay focused enough to perform. Nice tribute. Last year my wife and I both lost our moms. I spoke but didn’t perform and not sure I’d make it through. </div>

      Sorry for the loss of your moms @albert_d I know the pain I guess we are at the age where there will be a lot of loss with the generation of older relatives so glad I have music to help me through thanks for stopping by

    That was a beautiful tribute to your mom @KevinZ 👏🤩👏

    @Marty72 posted this following quote on your last video performance “Hand That Rocks The Cradle”. It had a lot of meaning for me because it summed up my feelings and so I wrote the quote down. I’d like to share it with you again here and now.

    “Death takes the body. God takes the soul. Our mind holds the memories. Our heart keeps the love. Our faith lets us know we will meet again.”

    🙏 Amen to that my friend🙏

      I am glad you didnt think my taking ole country songs and retasking them was in bad taste. There was a method to my madness I knew the people at the service could relate better to ole country vs new tributes. I kept getting new ones suggested to me but was afraid the crowd would not even know who the songs were Many came up to me and liked my versions after the service thanks for your prayers and kind thoughts @Bill_Brown

    A beautiful tribute to your mother @KevinZ . It is very tough to speak or perform at a memorial. You honored your mother in a special way by performing this song. You and your family have my deepest sympathies, thoughts and prayers.

      Thanks @charlie_d it was the least I could do. When the family asked me I thought about refusing but decided to do it no matter what thanks for kind thoughts

    @KevinZ I’m so sorry for your loss. I would have a difficult time performing at my mom’s funeral. I still get emotional, and it’s been a year and a half.

    This was quite beautiful. I’m sure she was looking upon you and smiling with such pride.

      Thanks @Loraine oh how well do I know your loss both my mom and dad passed within a year of each other both went through hell very hard to deal with I felt so useless. I was always the guy who had to fix things but I couldnt this time giving my parents tribute songs was about all I could do. I just want to get back to doing fun music and I am so glad I have it in my life. Thanks for your kind thoughts.

      Thanks @Marisa its been some hard times the tribute songs took up a fair amount of time and were very important to me. But now hope to do other songs with various emotion and feel to them. Might be silly but a kind of moving on vibe or action. Thanks for listening in
